If you go to some paid-sites, after you give an URL, a window pops up inspite of conventional HTML forms.
What is mechanism behind it ?
What type of response server might be sending so as to pop up that window.

Well if a resource is defined as a protected resource on the webserver ( a part of the resource/webserver setup)- if you try to access it and you have not yet logged in- it pops up the login window automatically. You can use the default window or have a custom form to popup- form based authentication.
